Benfica will be looking to move seven points clear at the top of the Primeira Liga table when they face Pacos de Ferreira on Thursday evening.

Since the beginning of the new year, the visitors have played four games in which they have three wins and one draw. To show how good they have been in the final third lately, they have scored exactly two goals in each of their last three matches. Given that they have also scored at least twice in each of their last eleven meetings with Pacos Ferreira, Thursday's match should be very entertaining.

Roger Schmidt's side will face a Pacos de Ferreira side that has won just once since the start of the 2022-23 campaign. As a result of this underwhelming season the hosts are having, they are at the bottom of the Primeira Liga table with just six points - ten points away from a safe spot. However, the fact that they have scored in all three games this month may just give them the boost they need to turn things around.

Pacos de Ferreira vs Benfica Betting Tips: Under 3.5 goals

Heading into this game with eleven wins from the last eleven head-to-head meetings between these two sides, the visitors are clear favorites for a win and we see nothing other than an away win.

Based on the fact that six of the last eight games of the hosts ended with less than three goals, a bet on ‘Under 3.5 goals’ could be the best option for this game.

  • Best Tip: Under 3.5 goals

Pacos de Ferreira Team News

Jóbson de Brito Gonzaga, who saw a straight red card in the 2-1 defeat to Braga last time out means he isn't expected to play a part in Thursday's match.

In addition to the 25-year-old, Pacos de Ferreira will also have to do without Luíz Carlos, who is suffering from a hamstring injury, but otherwise the hosts have no other problems.

Benfica Team News

After the impressive performance in the 3-0 win over Santa Clara last weekend, Benfica coach Roger Schmidt will probably resist the temptation to change his starting eleven.

Due to injury, the visitors will have to do without 29-year-old midfielder Rafa Silva, who has missed the last few games due to a muscle injury.
